Welcome Gerry, my name is ***** ***** you for your question.I use a versahaul for my scooter and it works well. Easy on easy off.You want to stay under 500lbs.You can log into or click here to see what would work best for you.It carries up to 500lbs and won't affect power for your Rig.The only thing you need to pay attention to is this extends your length so if you go up/down a incline it may scrape,,if you approach something that you think might scrape go on a angle to help avoid bottoming out. Any questions or problems let me know I'm happy to assist.

I should have made clear, a very steep incline,,it would not scrape during normal road travel including back roads.
say going into/out of a gas station with a very steep entrance ramp.
Sorry for any confusion.
